|Scottish Castles and Fortifications|
By C.J. Tabraham

|The Scottish Enlightenment |
By Arthur Herman
Arthur Herman takes the reader on a journey to the origins, as well as the furthest limits, of what we call the modern age. Scotland's turbulent history, from William Wallace to the Presbyterian Lords of the Covenant, laid the foundations for "the Scottish miracle". Herman shows how a remarkable circle of 18th-century Scottish thinkers, including David Hume and Adam Smith, gave birth to the key assumptions that underlie modern politics, economics, morals and cultural life.
